The beginning writing workshop training ended today.  I promised to compose a post with some of the places in cyberworld that I referenced.  Here it goes —

Stacey’s post about the TCRWP K-8 Continuum for Assessing Writing is here.

DonorsChoose information is here.  Stacey shares tips for getting your proposals funded.

Karla Hayden’s website is a must visit — she shares LOTS of practical ideas & links three phenomenal reading & writing workshop SUPER sites.

For those of you dying for more book ideas, check out Mentor Texts, Read Alouds, & More.

Here’s a link to my wiki for more teacher resources.  Also, check out Stacey’s wiki to see how she uses it as a resource for her students.

Our First Year Teacher Page is designed for teachers new to writing workshop.

You may also want to check out this post (& video) about the importance of using technology in our classrooms.  It’ll make you a better teacher . . . at least it did for me!

And don’t forget about Writer’s Notebook Wednesdays.  Each & every Wednesday you have a chance to share your writing with a larger community of writers.  Please join us, just leave a comment with your wn entry!

And speaking of comments . . . feel free to leave as many as you want — they are fuel for bloggers . . . and a great way to find a support system as you begin writing workshop!  🙂
